about the judaeo-masonic infiltration of the Holy Catholic Church at the highest levels. We see the bizarre and frankly antichristian acts and statements of Popes since John XXIII as evidence, among other things like the Novus Ordo Mass. For more information read the Alta Vendita, War of Antichrist by Dillon, Humanum Genus by Pope Leo XIII, Nikita Roncalli by Bellegrandi, John XXIII by Carpi, etc

In this study of the manner in which medieval nuns lived, Penelope Johnson challenges facile stereotypes of nuns living passively under monastic rule, finding instead that collectively they were empowered by their communal privileges and status to think and act without many of the subordinate attitudes of secular women.

Sister Elena Aiello was born in April, 1895 to Pasquale Aiello and Tereseina Paglilla in Montalto Uffugo. Her father (like his father before him) was a tailor. Her picture here shows her as a young novice and she was quite beautiful. She became a nun and when she was older she founded a new order, The Sister Minims of The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

 In 1983 the ancient rite of Consecration of Virgins Canon 604, was reintroduced into the Church in New Code of Canon Law for other forms of Consecrated Life. This little out of print book will be a gem for any Consecrated Virgin or Religious who wants to enter deeper into the spiritual and mystical meaning of their espousal with Christ their Bridegroom.
